I tried grub2 on my ppc (apple iBook g3) but I don't

So written a CHRP script which permit to choose
yaboot or GRUB2, here it is:

Nice... I just wish such scripts could be simpler. :)

Personally I don't mind booting to OF and typing "boot hd:6,yaboot" as needed, but that's just me. Perhaps you could add your script to the wiki, maybe on its own page?

If someone isn't already doing, I'm going to write a reiserfs
module (let me know).

There has been at least one request for that already, so I think it would be welcome. Marco has done most of the filesystem stuff so far, but I think is unavailable for further work until July.

Also what about multiboot specification support in grub2?
Is available (on ppc and ia32)? If not why ? :)

The multiboot spec is still x86-specific. There is multiboot loader for x86 in GRUB2, but I don't know how much testing it's seen. I am working on a project which will eventually require multiboot for PPC, but as far as I know there have been no other requests for it...

If you are looking for things to work on, the PPC section of the TODO list ( is up-to-date. I have been working on the devalias filtering. Actually, I think the devalias filtering was misprioritized (my fault), but there are a lot of critical items on that list, some large, some small...
